Preparation of an open-access digital edition of the first three volumes of Vetusta Monumenta [Ancient Monuments], a series of prints and essays published by the Society of Antiquaries of London from 1718 to 1906. (36 months)

We are producing a digital edition of Vetusta Monumenta [Ancient Monuments], the series of spectacular antiquarian prints published by the Society of Antiquaries of London from 1718 to 1906. The plates depict a huge variety of artifacts and monuments, ranging from the Rosetta Stone to the ruins of Fountains Abbey. By commissioning these large engravings with accompanying essays, the Society of Antiquaries developed a research agenda based on preservation and set the stage for a widespread and enduring fascination with the past and its objects. We have digitized all 337 engravings, completed the introduction, and over two dozen commentaries while creating a state-of-the-art digital platform, now live at We seek NEH support for the second phase of the project: researching and writing the commentary for the 144 remaining eighteenth-century plates, perfecting the interface, and seeing Volumes I-III through peer review and final publication.
